Business explodes for local pie shop

TUCSON, Ariz. (KOLD News 13) – On November 24, the day before Thanksgiving, the line of cars from Sydney’s Sweet Shoppe circled the parking lot.

“Each year, Thanksgiving is the busiest time of the year for us,” said Sydney Adams, owner of Sydney’s Sweet Shoppe.

Business is booming for the local store but, like most, they have had to adapt to changes in the supply chain.

“Because of the shortages that occurred this year, we were preparing months and months in advance,” Adams said.

They started ordering pumpkin boxes long before Thanksgiving pie crossed the minds of most Tucsonians, so anyone who wanted a pie could get one.

“We can be at other people’s tables for dessert and that’s great,” Adams said.

In 2018, she learned how to make a pie crust from her grandmother. Now, three years later, her grandmother’s recipes were the icing on the cake of Thanksgiving celebrations for hundreds of families in southern Arizona, Adams says, it’s an honor.

“Having the whole community each time continue to support you, buy your product and share it with others, there is no feeling of abuse,” Adams said.

And while Adams’ business is booming, she wants it to be an example to other women of color that they too can be successful entrepreneurs.

“You never stop pushing and trying, you can do whatever you think about it,” Adams said. “I am a black woman, I own a business and the sky is not the limit.”

Adams says pumpkin was the most popular flavor this year, followed by Dutch apple.
